I love the drama of the ticket round, it is very intense and a great thing to watch. The season is on the line and you have 6 minutes to move on and punch a ticket or you go home. It is a wonderful thing for sure.
At the same time everybody knows that getting a great draw is part of why some kids advance. Example John Doe, who may very well be easily one of the best 8 kids in the state, drew the state champ in the ticket round so his season is over. It does not discredit any other kids win, just helps to ensure the best 16 get to state. Parris is one of those all-time great Indiana wrestlers, but somebody had to draw him in the ticket round. Same with Lee and the list goes on.
We have great wrestling in this state, but it can always be improved upon. I am not saying I am in favor of either, just can see both sides of the argument.
